2013 InaugurationPosted by on December 20, 2012
There has been a strong interest from constituents in the 13th Congressional District in attending the Presidential Inauguration and tickets to the event have been allocated.
There are some Inaugural Day activities that do not require a ticket. The viewing areas of the National Mall closest to the U.S. Capitol will require a ticket, but the rest of the National Mall will be open to the public, with large viewing screens placed in several locations. You also do not need a ticket to stand along the Inaugural parade route. Volunteer opportunities are also available. Be aware that it will be cold in Washington in January and that you could be standing outside for several hours and chairs or stools are prohibited. You can learn more about the Inauguration activities from the event by visiting http://2013pic.org/ or by visiting the Inauguration Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/2013inauguration
